– Boeing 777-300ER to commence operations from 2nd October 2011 –

Sydney, Australia, 2nd December 2010: Emirates has announced that its third-daily Sydney to Dubai service will recommence from 2nd October 2011, operated by a new, larger Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Emirates flight EK415 departs early morning at 0600 from Sydney, enabling passengers to arrive in destinations across Europe, the Middle East and Africa within the same day of travel.  The return flight EK414 departs Dubai at 0140, arriving in Sydney at 2230.

The service, previously operated by a Boeing 777-200LR aircraft, was suspended last month, following a reorganisation of services and reallocation of aircraft by Emirates internationally.

“With demand for our Sydney flights continuing to grow, the return of the third-daily Sydney service is welcome news for our staff, travel partners and customers in Sydney,” said Barry Brown, Emirates Vice President Australasia.

“The Boeing 777-300ER which will operate from 2nd October offers both much needed capacity growth for this service and stunning onboard products, including First Class Private Suites, lie-flat seats in Business Class, spacious Economy Class and more than 1200 channels on Emirates’ inflight entertainment system ice.”

As with all Emirates’ flights, passengers will also enjoy complimentary gourmet food and beverages, generous baggage allowances of up to 30kg in Economy Class, and fully inclusive pricing in all classes.

The Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will be configured with eight Private Suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 304 Economy Class seats, increasing capacity on Emirates’ flights between Sydney and Dubai by 41 per cent.

This announcement accompanies a series of capacity increases for Emirates’ Australasian services this year, including the introduction of Boeing 777-200LR aircraft on Perth services, Boeing 777-300ERs on Melbourne services, and a Boeing 777-300ER being deployed to Brisbane on 1st January.

 In the past two years Emirates has increased its capacity to Australia by an average of 25 per cent annually.  This has included the launch of third-daily Melbourne and Sydney services and a second-daily Brisbane service.

Emirates’ extensive route network consists of 109 destinations worldwide in 65 countries.  For flight information and bookings contact Emirates on 1300 303 777, visit your local travel agent or www.emirates.com/au.
